I take the subway 5 days a week to downtown Los Angeles and in my travels I have seen many different personalities that range through:
The ride is an interesting one with much closer interaction than what I would like on some days. However, with that said, it truly is a place to experience life and situations you would probably never run into anywhere else. So, that provides an opportunity for growth and reflection.
I often reflect on the different levels of personalities that make up this world. We each have something that we personally bring to the world. There truly is NO WAY you have come to be on this planet and not contributed to this world. Even a hermit in the deep forest has done something for an animal or nature.
Before this life began, our souls laid out a Life Plan that would provide the opportunities to meet the goals we wanted to achieve while here. Now that concept may sound a little farfetched to some but to prove my point you simply have to look no further than your own life to see the path to your purpose.
When something feels right and all life is going smoothly, you are on the path you planned.
Now, you may have some challenges along the path. These are the obstacles you set up for your own growth. Since those challenges are preplanned by YOU, then on a soul level, you are prepared for that challenge and will survive it. If you can see the reason why you had to go through it, this will help you to move past the event easier. And if you follow your heart and find the positive in the situation, this will also help with the recovery process.
If you constantly are having medical problems; or everywhere you turn it seems like nothing is going right; or the feeling that the world is against you, then chances are, it is more than just a challenge. It is God’s way of getting your attention to try and get you back on your path. And the further you get off that path, then the harder life gets. This path was established so that we, God’s children could have a plan with many opportunities for growth. God is a parent trying to help you meet your goals and only wanting the best for you.
We are to experience life, not sit back and watch it happen. No one should discount their part in the world! You may be lonely or feel like an outcast, but you have a purpose. One of the goals along your path is to “remember” what your purpose is. There are many different purposes:
1. It may be an easy one- like you have a natural ability to sing and you pursue your dream to be a singer and touch others lives with your music.
2. It may be a little tougher -like you had to go through a tough childhood to be able to face and grow through your challenges so that you help to make sure those challenges are made easier for future generations. I.e. You were abused as a child and grow up to be an activist for the next generation of children.
3. Then there are the harder ones- you have lived a “normal” life, nothing too exciting then out of nowhere some tragedy or major challenge changes your course in life. I.e. A loved one dies from something that causes you to change legislator, or advocate against the one thing that caused the passing (drunk driving, texting while driving, or cancer.) The event becomes a catalyst to get you on your path with a renewed belief to spread faith in God and humanity.
To grow your soul- is one common purpose WE ALL have.
We all must remember that, no matter who we are, we are important. The challenges against negativity and the accompanying growth that comes along with it are made easier when every person does their part. And by having the desire to look for your purpose you will start to see YOUR path illuminated.
Some will sacrifice their life.
Some will live long to share their love.
Some will contribute by keeping the world moving forward in different ways.
We are all a piece in a bigger puzzle.
Since the beginning of life, we have broken so many old habits and learned so much. We are amazing angels in human form. By treating each other with love and respect you are helping the next person with a positive point to help grow from and remember how amazing WE are.
Much Love and Purpose.
